The Mumbai Indians will take on the Gujarat Titans in the 57th game of the Indian Premier League 2023. In the previous game, the Mumbai Indians easily defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore, improving their position on the points table. The Titans have been the best team this season, and they come into this game off a big win over the Lucknow Super Giants.
The Mumbai Indians’ form has been inconsistent, and aside from Piyush Chawla, no other bowler has been consistent for the team. The Gujarat Titans have one of the tournament’s best batting lineups. Mumbai must win this game to keep their playoff hopes alive, and we anticipate a close game.
The 57th Match between Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Titans will take place on May 12th, 2023 at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Match Details to Note

The Royal Challengers Bangalore were stunned by Rohit Sharma’s team. Despite the 6-wicket victory and more than three overs to spare, the Mumbai Indians came from behind to win this match. The side’s problem has been a lack of consistency, and as they take on the table toppers, Sharma would like to see a consistent approach from his players.
Rohit Sharma has had a difficult season, and he and Ishan Kishan must fire at the top for the team to succeed. Suryakumar Yadav has been Mumbai’s standout performer, and he will be expected to anchor the middle order alongside Nehal Wadehra and Tim David. Cameron Green, Raghav Goyal, and Chris Jordan bolster the side’s lower middle order firepower.
The bowling attack must execute its plans flawlessly against Gujarat Titans’ strong batting lineup. With the new ball, the team will need a strong performance from Jason Behrendorff and Piyush Chawla. Green, along with Chris Jordan and Kumar Kartikeya, plays an important role in the middle overs. GT batsmen have been destroying bowling attacks, so Akash Madhwal and Goyal must put on a good show.
Rohit Sharma (c), Tim David, Ramandeep Singh, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tristan Stubbs, Dewald Brevis, Jofra Archer, Arjun Tendulkar, Arshad Khan, Kumar Kartikeya, Hrithik Shokeen, Jason Behrendorff, Akash Madhwal, Cameron Green, Piyush Chawla, Duan Jansen, Vishnu Vinod, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Raghav Goyal
Players to watch out for:
When the right-handed top order batter is on form, he is unstoppable. His 186.14 strike rate is higher than in any of his previous IPL campaigns.
The Australian international has excelled in his finisher role this season. His strike rate in the IPL is 185.79 after 20 games.
The spinner has been remarkably consistent this year, taking wickets in every match except two against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Possible Playing XI:
Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav, Tim David, Nehal Wadhera, Chris Jordan, Piyush Chawla, Akash Madhwal, Kumar Kartikeya, Jason Behrendorff Raghav Goyal (Impact Player)
Hardik Pandya’s team arrives here after a crushing 56-run victory over the Lucknow Super Giants. The defending champions lead the points table and are one win away from advancing to the next round. They have a strong lineup of batsmen and strike bowlers. Pandya will look to keep the momentum going and lead his team to victory.
In the previous game, Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill combined for a 142-run outing, and the team anticipates similar fireworks from the duo. Pandya has performed admirably in the middle order and will look to score runs alongside David Miller and Vijay Shankar. This batting lineup is bolstered by Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, and Rashid Khan.
Mohammad Shami has been in good form with 19 wickets, and he and Hardik Pandya will look to strike early. Rashid Khan is doing well and contributes to the strength of this attack. He’d like to talk to Noor Ahmed about the scoring rate in the middle overs. Mohit Shama and Alzarri Joseph round out the team’s batting lineup.
Hardik Pandya (c), Shubman Gill, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Sai Sudharsan, Wriddhiman Saha, Matthew Wade, Rashid Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph, Yash Dayal, Pradeep Sangwan, Darshan Nalkande, Jayant Yadav, R. Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Kane Williamson, Odean Smith, KS Bharat, Shivam Mavi, Urvil Patel, Joshua Little, Mohit Sharma
Players to watch out for:
The classy right-handed opener was named Player of the Match in the previous game, and only Faf du Plessis and Yashasvi Jaiswal have scored more runs in the IPL 2023.
After hitting 41 not out against Rajasthan Royals, the keeper-batter hit 81 against Lucknow Super Giants.
The Afghanistan spinner has never taken fewer than 17 wickets in an IPL season and needs three more dismissals to equal his career high.
Possible Playing XI:
Hardik Pandya (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph (Impact Player)

Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Titans Toss Prediction
This season, teams chasing the score have won four out of five times. Defending scores in Mumbai is a difficult task because big scores are easily chased down, as we saw in the previous game. The team that wins the toss in this game will not hesitate to bowl first.
Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Titans Pitch Report
Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium is a batter’s paradise, with a flat surface and shorter boundaries to aid batsmen. Spinners who are willing to take chances and pitch the ball up have performed well on this surface. It’s a tough wicket for fast bowlers because there’s not much for them here.
The sky over Mumbai will be clear, and we anticipate a high-scoring game. The wicket is flat, with little for bowlers to work with, and batsmen can freely swing their arms. The team that bats first in the game will have a target of approximately 190 runs.
Mumbai Indians vs Gujarat Titans Prediction
The Mumbai Indians come in with a win, but a weak bowling attack has hampered the team. They are up against a strong batting lineup, and their bowlers must perform admirably if they are to win. The Gujarat Titans have checked every box. The top order is scoring runs, and two key bowlers are performing well. While Mumbai is playing in its own backyard, we believe the Gujarat Titans will win this game. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!
Gujarat Titans is the favourite to beat Mumbai Indians at the odds of 1.87.
